So I have a budget and I'm lowering so I'm ganna buy springs and shocks/struts or springs and cc plates. Which one would be a better choice for a dd? I know they don't do the same thing but I can really only get one or the other.( sorry didn't want to start a new thread for something simple)

I would do all three at once, then get an alignment. I'd wait until you could afford to do it all at once. You'll be happier with the results, and it'll all be done correctly.

if you don't mind doing the work a few times there's no issue with doing them seperately...if your shocks feel fine right now go for the springs first...shocks are easy to do later one when money becomes avaliable. and honestly an alignment is great but unless your toe is way off you're not gonna shread your tires from driving for a while without it. on my last stang i went 2 years after dropping it for my alignment and kept the same tires the whole time on the front (rears of course didn't last long due to fun). C&C plates are a great idea too if you plan on dropping past 1.5", but anything less then that you don't have to have them.

here's my first stang...lowered quite a bit...oem shocks at the time...no other supporting suspension mods lol. it was a highschool budget car that really kept me smiling..and the slicks always looked good tucked in there

Thanks so I might just do them all individually. I'm definitely on a high school budget right now.

It starts much quicker and idles great non of that weird hard little stops you can kinda here when you first start your engine. Really smooth.

It's a definite needed upgrade after 100k miles cause 70k on the factory one it was looking rough and really bad start ups. If I had to I'd buy it again for sure.
